Hollywood relies on the summer to get them thru the rest of the year…and this has not been a good year for summertime…

Many of the contenders, the ‘tent-pole’ pictures, that were supposed to be hailed as box-office champs, simply fizzled away towards obscurity…

With the exception of Johnny Depp’s fourth installment as Captain Jack Sparrow in the “Pirates Of The Caribbean” features, very few films leveled up to the muster that was expected…

…especially the super heroes…

Green Lantern, Thor, and Captain America all did poorly in their big-screen bombs, and, there’s a lot more riding on these flicks then just a few cinematic flirtations with the lesser-known of the species…These films are the set-up for next year’s tent-pole feature, “The Avengers”, which will feature these characters, plus others who have had a bit better success at the box-office…

But it’s all about perspective in a way…because you will find a film like “Thor” actually on some positive money lists, while “Green Lantern”, who did about the same poor box-office business, is on the flop heap…This is simply due to the fact that ‘Thor’ cost about 39cents to make, compared to the multi-million-billion they spent on ‘Lantern’…

So…when it comes to life, who’s to say what is or isn’t a ‘success’…

…and who ya’ listening to anyway…
